That movie was terrifying and fun. This is how horror movies should be made; more reliant on suspense and atmosphere, and less on jump scares. I also love the haunting music. And of all films I've seen, this is the only one rated 7 or lower at IMDb that I gave it a perfect score.

Carrie (1976)
Rotten Tomatoes Rating: 93%

Sissy Spacek and Piper Laurie give out spellbinding performances in this effective and heartbreaking horror flick based on the first published novel by Stephen King. Although there are couple of things in the film that are pretty dated, considering that it was made in the 70's.

I first thought I was going to like that movie okay or even hate it due to its graphic, unpleasant, and sadistic nature. But near the beginning of the third act, I was already rooting for the main character to make it out alive. I sure found the film decent enough after watching it. Then after awhile, it has really grown on me.

I can definitely understand why people wouldn't like this movie, most especially for the squeamish ones. This movie purposely targeted towards the horror fans. To me, it's fabulously unpleasant and terrifyingly fun. It's a shame that it's largely obscure to American audience, while it is known in its native country Australia and the U.K.

This is one of those movies that makes me scared, laugh, and cry, for the price of one. It is also one of those horror flicks, where I did care about the main character. I genuinely enjoy this film way more than any of Sam Raimi's Spider-Man films. I really hope he makes more movies like this in the near future. And bonus points if Ellen Page is going to be in one of them. She was originally going to play the role that later went to Alison Lohman, but dropped out due to scheduling conflicts.

Don't Breathe (2016)
Rotten Tomatoes Rating: 87%

It has a real terrifying yet unpredictable killer who is brilliantly played by Stefan Lang (Avatar).

Cronos (1993)
Rotten Tomatoes Rating: 89%

I didn't think I was going to like it that much, considering the lower rating. It was oddly fascinating and had some real good music to it. If you really liked Pan's Labyrinth, it's worth checking out.

The Descent (2005)
Rotten Tomatoes Rating: 85%

There are two alternative endings to this movie: the U.S. ending and the U.K. ending. The former is more satisfying, but has a sequel hook to it. While the latter is more bleak, but more logical. I like both endings almost equally. So, it doesn't matter which ending the viewer prefers.

That movie is both scary and funny, as it lampoons horror movie clichés.

It is one of Tim Burton's better recent films and also one of the better recent live-action musicals. It's wishful thinking, but I hope he gets to make another horror musical, but more on a similar fashion to The Wicker Man (1973).

It is directed by the same horror genius that brought you The Loved Ones. If you liked that movie, then you'll probably like this. I really like to see director Sean Byrne make more great horror films, like he could be become the next Sam Raimi, Wes Craven, or John Carpenter. And it would also be real nice if he got an offer at Sam Raimi's Ghost House Pictures.

It has real effective and unsettling scenes and scares that makes this movie worth seeing out. I also love when movies, horror or not, leave you cold or breathless.

This film is definitely not for everyone, especially animal lovers. It's mostly for horror fans or people that have a strong stomach or nerves. The animals were actually killed on camera. While that's already bad enough, but by far the most disturbing and gruesome of all is the turtle scene. That scene nearly made me puke. Here's an fun trivia: actor Perry Pirkanen even cried after the scene was finished filming.

There is an alternative cut where its free of the animal cruelty. But I think that's part of the great shock value, despite being so very wrong.

The acting wasn't top-notch, though. But it's the social commentary about civilized vs. uncivilized society and the great soundtrack that make it up for it.

And this is the lowest rated movie at IMDb that I truly liked (8-10/10), of all that I've seen.

I was pleasantly surprised by this movie. I was hooked from the beginning to the end. It's creepy, atmospheric, and doesn't rely on jump scares or blood and gore. What made the film scary is you never see who or what is the Blair Witch. It could be a person, a supernatural creature, or even an unidentified group of people or cult.

Although I can see some people being annoyed by Heather Donahue's screaming and shouting, and also the shaky camera. To me, I thought they were part of the haunting mood of this film.

What boggles my mind is this movie got a Razzie nomination for Worst Picture, and yet a far worse and more painful Baby Geniuses got completely snubbed by them. If you ask me, that's total blasphemy and inexcusable.

Anyways, whether you're going to like this film or not, it's still worth checking out. I think this would make a fun double feature with Cannibal Holocaust, another found footage movie and as well as the film that started the genre. It is TBWP that popularized it.

These are the horror movies that I really enjoyed, but they are rated too low at IMDb, specifically below 7.5. It's always best to see the movie for yourself to make up your own opinion on it if the ratings are too discouraging.
